This is nothing more than a county tick unless you happen to really like mediocre beer. Fruity and sweet it drinks more like an alcopop than even an average golden ale. Skip it and save your money for better options.

Aroma / Appearance - Peachy in color, the orange base glows with a stingy white head that does not grow very tall or look very pleasing. Peach jolly ranchers are sweet and cloying like a glass full of sugar water. There isn’t much depth or balance to speak of.

Flavor / Palate - Light peachy notes tickle the taste buds before the whole thing fades away on the back of the tongue. Mild malts act as if more is coming but nothing ever does. Though it is sessionable the profile creates a bland and boring beer that is just what you would expect from a grocery store chain.

Martin243 (742) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - AUG 21, 2013
500ml bottle, served in a large shaker. Definite peach aroma. Gold with a white head. Good lacing, Peach flavour with a nice biscuity malt background. I used to drink this quite often, and sort of left it behind when I started to pursue more challenging and esoteric stuff, but its not bad for a change.

Not just a peachy aroma but a peachy and floral taste too. From a bottle it is an amber bronze. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Joe_F (9) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - JUL 14, 2013 does not count
Bottle in New Zealand 14/7/13 Peaches, peaches, and some more peaches. Sweet, with some slight bitterness and hints of good malt, fantastic colour. Head didn’t stick around long. On a spring or summer evening this would be a fantastic beer. Could also go great with a bread/cheese platter.

SarkyNorthener (1732) - Walsall (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUN 1, 2013
Bottle. Golden orange beer with small head. Aroma of peaches and peaches. Taste is floral peaches and maybe a touch of hops. a little oily on the palate. Well Marmite comes to mind. You either like it or you don’t. I didn’t. Too much peach for me.
